New Fitness App SKWOD Helps Fitness Trainers Sell Workout Plans
by BWW News Desk - May 24, 2016

Fitness is big business, as the industry is worth over USD $85 bn globally. The fitness DVD market is worth $3 bn and personal training worth $10 bn in the USA alone. Platforms like Instagram are disrupting and challenging traditional sources of health and fitness inspiration, empowering consumers to get fit in their living rooms, parks and anywhere they have a wifi connection. Instagram currently has over 400 million monthly active users, and growth is showing no signs of slowing down. This social network for sharing photos has become the place for the newly termed 'fitspo' movement (short for fitness inspiration), and where users have already tagged over 130 million photos with the hashtag '#fitness' (#kimkardashian has been tagged only 3.4 million times to give some perspective).

by Guest Blogger: Katy Fraggos - May 24, 2016

Almost everyone has that one day where they say to themselves, "That's it. I have to get back in shape." (Or at least something to that extent.) So, you know you need to get back into shape. But, where do you start? Most people start by saying they need to lose 10lbs by their vacation… which is 2 weeks away. Let me stop there. We need to take it back a few notches and think this one through and come up with a better approach that will set you up for fitness success rather than failure! (more...)

Photo Flash: Meet the Cast of THE VELOCITY OF AUTUMN at TheatreWorks Silicon Valley
by BWW News Desk - May 19, 2016

TheatreWorks Silicon Valley closes its 2015/2016 season with the explosive new dramatic comedy, The Velocity of Autumn. This tender-hearted play by Eric Coble centers on an elderly artist locked in a volatile showdown with her family over where she'll spend her remaining years. In a wry, spirited quest to "not go gently" into a retirement home, Alexandra barricades herself in her brownstone with enough homemade Molotov cocktails to blow the entire block sky-high as she negotiates the terms of her future with a long-estranged son who has battles of his own. The Velocity of Autumn was declared "Wickedly funny and wonderfully touching" by Broadway World and "A tale that could resonate with a broad range of audiences as it touches on a sobering dilemma faced by families every day" by Variety. This production will be directed by Giovanna Sardelli with performances June 1-June 26 (press opening: June 4) at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, 500 Castro St., Mountain View. For tickets ($19-$80) and information the public may visit or call (650) 463-1960. (more...)

BWW Blog: Jessica Walker - Community Outreach and High School Theatre
by Guest Blogger: Jessica Walker - May 17, 2016

In a tight-nit community like that which I am from, the members of the town are all very close. Adults and children alike collaborate during sporting events, stream clean-ups, and fun-runs. This dynamic within the community also means that the members of the town play an important role in our school's drama department. Schools with less money in the theatre budget are often prone to do-it-yourself projects and community outreach, telling a story with minimal financial input. Coming from a small, rural community, myself and my fellow actors are accustomed to assisting in most if not all aspects of the high school drama program. However, we would not be able to create our productions without the help of friends and family. Through experience, I have learned that making a production is often so deeply rooted in the community you have supporting you.  (more...)
